Finding work: Job Shop
A Chat button shows below when we're online
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has abruptly affected some sectors, with retailers, pubs, restaurants and other services closing their doors to minimise the risks associated with close social contact. We know that many students who work alongside their degrees will have found themselves in financial difficulty as a result of this, and the Careers and Employability Service is here to support you should you wish to find other work.
Other services, such as supermarkets and delivery companies, are rapidly expanding their temporary workforces in response to a changing way of living. We ask that you ensure you are able to comply with any current government advice on social distancing if you undertake new jobs in this period, which is still as important as ever for your own health and the health of the public. To support your job search during this period, download the document Resources to help you with your job search during Covid-19
If you need any help or guidance in your job search or any other career-related queries, please email Careers.
